EVE-NG is the new more powerful version of our previous project UnetLab. The Unetlab project team investigated its future possibilities and came to the decision that rebuilding the emulation platform would allow the new platform EVE-NG to be the best.

The new EVE-NG platform is ready for todays requirements. It allows enterprises, e-learning providers/centres, individuals and group collaborators to create virtual proof of concepts, solutions and training environments.

EVE-NG is the first clientless multivendor network emulation software that empowers network and security professionals with huge opportunities in the networking world.
